After six months of monthly Courageous Conversations, questions are mounting about what we do with these conversations? What is the purpose? What action will we take together based on the conversations? In this blog, Greg Taylor and The Journey staff have put together a summary of Courageous Conversations that will help us remember the ground we’ve covered and decide on collective actions of love, mercy, and justice we can do in our church and community.
Greg Taylor co-wrote a book with Anne-Geri’ Fann about How to Get Ready for Short Term Missions.
